The Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School Whole Body Donor Program has reopened on a limited case-by-case basis. Due to current trends in the COVID-19 outbreak, RWJMS will be increasing the level of caution that we are taking when screening deceased donors for coronavirus infections in order to protect the safety of our staff, faculty, and students. We regret any inconvenience this may cause our current registered donors and we appreciate your understanding. If you have any questions, please contact us at 1-800-443-8211 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
In depth study of the human body is a very important part of medical education that is possible because conscientious people donate their bodies for medical education. Countless individuals enjoy fullness of health in part through their well educated physicians. These physicians are always mindful of the gift of the human body and acknowledge their indebtedness to their anonymous donors.
The donor's survivors may derive comfort in the knowledge that all people involved in medical education hold the life process in reverence and respect the remains in our care and protection at all times. We responsibly carry out the final wishes of the donor and of the family.
